We have had some series rain over the last month here in the North East of England. The water table is topped up and it doesn’t take much to get the rivers flowing high.
The River Tees from High Force to Low Force isn’t that #sTEESy at high levels. Mathew Wilkinson takes a dip and swims with a little help to safety.
Had a great paddle today, with a great group of guys/gals. I may have also witnessed the youngest paddler ever to paddle high to low force. More about that later.
Today has a number of firsts. My first time in my Liquid Logic Stomper, my first time paddling with a Uni club (many thanks Teesside Uni) and my first swim on the Tees!
When I left home this morning Rainchasers.com was indicating that the level was a low 0.71 on the gauge. In reality this is probably a medium level.
Here are a few images from the day.
